Conversations with Kanwal, a digital talk show to empower women

Kanwal Ahmed, the founder of Soul Sisters Pakistan, has launched her own digital talk show Conversations with Kanwal and it aims to empower women.

The first episode released on April 6, which highlighted domestic violence. In it, Ahmed is in conversation with a woman, Adeela, who suffered torture and violence from her husband for 10 years.

She was abused, slapped and tied with a belt even while she was pregnant. “Getting slapped every day became normal for me,” said Adeela. Her husband also cheated on her.

She finally realised that she was not meant to be treated like that and, with her father’s support, stood up for herself and her children.

Ahmed, expressing her frustration in the show’s trailer says, we are mothers, sisters, daughters, but human too. “If someone ruins our life, we wait silently, just because of the fear of what will people say?”

The talk show will feature 12 real stories of strong Pakistani women who will talk about everyday challenges faced by them.

Ahmed was selected for Facebook’s leadership programme in 2018. She started the online community, Soul Sisters Pakistan, in 2013 to provide a safe space for women in Pakistan and encourage them to discuss their problems.

    I’m sorry but this is a flop show – please tell me how this show is making a difference. Plus Kanwal, does not know how to host a show, she lacks the charisma to capture the audience. Her montone voice makes is unbearable to listen to her. Plus this is nothing new, there have many shows like this. Also, she never leaves an opportunity go by to ridicule Pakistan.
